  Review of Strategic Planning: Digest of responses to consultation : page 7   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Inverclyde Council: Such a document would have to be subject to formal scrutiny by Ministers and also public consultation to reflect its status.
We do not consider at this time that parliament should actually approve the document which is part way towards creating a form of statutory document for which the text itself is law, such as that prepared for the National Plan in Holland.
The parliament and, in particular the Transport and Environment committee must have a key role to play in debating the direction and content of the overview document with final approval lying with the appropriate Scottish Minister.

 Scottish Parliament constituencies and regions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Each constituency is a sub-division of a region, the additional members system is designed to produce proportional representation for each region, and the total number of MSPs elected to the parliament is 129.
Until the United Kingdom general election of 2005 the first past the post constituencies were the same as for the House of Commons (United Kingdom Parliament, Westminster) (apart from Orkney and Shetland, which were separate constituencies at Holyrood, but not at Westminster).
Newer Westminster constituencies also straddle council area boundaries but, in Westminster representation, there is a clear sense of council areas being grouped into larger areas: the East Ayrshire council area, North Ayrshire council area and South Ayrshire council area, for example, are treated as a single Ayrshire area.

 House of Commons Hansard Debates for 31 Jul 1997 (pt 27)
Surely the logic of her position is that each constituency should have two Members of Parliament to represent the two different classes of antithetical human beings.
I do not envisage a Parliament that will do that; I see one that will discuss with local government where the appropriate boundaries should be between the functions of local government and those of the Scottish Parliament.
As the legitimacy of the Parliament to be will be based on a referendum in which the majority will have no vote, we may even find that some short-sighted English will start applauding the break-up of the Union.

 House of Parliament on Intelligence Agencies
It is important that Parliament and the public should know the clear objectives of the intelligence and security agencies; but it is also right that we should explain to the public that the success of the agencies can be secured only by conditions of secrecy.
A number of our constituents believe that they are under daily surveillance from the security agencies, who are up the chimney, in the garage, or inside the television set.
I think that Parliament also assumes that those Members' instincts, political background and awareness of colleagues' feelings enable them to act decisively in dealing with anything that might be wrong inside that ring, to set boundaries and parameters, and to ensure that money is not being wasted and the job is being done properly.

Having the same constituencies for the Scottish Parliament and Westminster is desirable but not essential and should not drive change to the electoral system for the Scottish Parliament.
Scottish Parliament regions should be revised to reflect natural local communities and identity and should be built on local authority areas.
